Visited 9/29/07, after running around to local bottle shops in the area.

Lunar is easy to miss...we drove right past it before realizing it. Came around the block and parked in back. Nice, considering that there's minimal on street parking.

The place shows it's age but is not run down. A dark atmosphere with a nice selection of homebrewed taps as well as some guest taps, such as Two Brothers, Franziskaner, GI, etc. Also, a nice selection of bottles including a WAY underpriced Mikkeller Beer Geek Breafast. When I saw the price, I asked how they were making any money on it. The bartender's reply..."we're not". So I bought two to bring home.

Lunch consisted of Tombstone pizza but the bartender gave us the option of bringing food in from someplace else. It was nice to have the option but we just settled for some pizza.

The jukebox had a wide range of great music, from all different genres. My nephew chose some U2 while I played some Ray Charles. All good stuff on the box.

One of the "regulars", who lived in the neighborhood, had the 411 for us on everything from samplers (which were not technically available, but provided for us, none the less), to food options. They should put her on the payroll.

A nice place to stop and spend an hour or two.

3.82/5  rDev -8.6%
vibe: 3.75 | quality: 3.75 | service: 3.75 | selection: 4 | $$$

Atmosphere-a little bit of a dive with some nice, older wood work. A little dead on a Sunday afternoon but a nice quiet place to enjoy a couple.

Quality-beers were solid. We had the IPA, Citra-Hopped Cream Ale and Munich-Style Lager.

Service-it was dead, but the bartender kept our glasses full and allowed us samples of each beer we wanted to try.

Selection-They had about six house beers on tap with a half-dozen or so more guest taps. Bottle/can selection was very good as well. Many new ones to try and old ones to revisit.

Food-They only have a few small bags of chips, etc. Carryout/delivery is welcome from surrounding areas.

Value-House beers were fairly reasonable at 5-6 dollars a pint. Guest beers seemed a little pricey.

Overall-A nice location just off the bike path. We'll be back every 4-6 weeks for a couple quiet beers in a nice setting.

One of my favorite local places to go to. There is no kitchen because that is where they are brewing. Low lit atmosphere is perfect for just going in and having a couple of beers and enjoying them without all the raucous of annoying people talking about nothing. Large choice of craft beers definitely makes it easy for everyone to find something that they will like.
